Abstract:

In the spring of 1832, when the Indian warrior Black Hawk and a thousand followers marched into Illinois to reoccupy lands earlier ceded to American settlers, the U.S. Army turned to rival tribes for military support. John Hall explores these alliances and provides a rare view of Indian attitudes and strategies in war and peace. Hall deepens our understanding of Native Americans and the complex roles they played in the nation's history. More broadly, he demonstrates the risks and lessons of small wars that entail an "uncommon defense" by unlikely allies in pursuit of diverse, even conflicting, goals.
